Jury reform: Criminal trials vs. coroner's inquests

The Gerald Stanley trial sparked a lot of debate about jury selection in Saskatchewan. During the trial -- the jury appeared to contain no visibly Indigenous people. CBC cannot independently confirm the background of any jurors. This led to the question: Are Indigenous people represented enough on juries? There's one type of jury where that question is openly asked and addressed. For coroner's inquests -- the coroner can request the jury be made up in part of Indigenous people. And that's exactly what happened at the inquest into the death of Breanna Kannick. CBC's Joelle Seal was there when that inquest started in late March.
